Las Cruces, NM KOA

We’ve arrived in Las Cruces, NM – the second largest city in New Mexico after Albuquerque, followed by Rio Rancho, Santa Fe and Roswell.

We’ve opted to spend our 2 nights at the Las Cruces KOA – PARK MAP.  Located on a bluff west of town, this park overlooks the city and beyond to the Organ Mountains to the east of town.  We’re in site #13, a “View Site” which backs-up to a short rock fence and the amazing views beyond.  These premium sites are $48/night after our Value Kard discount.   Most of the parks sites are large, somewhat reminiscent of one of our favorite RV parks in Taos, with lots of native cactus and plants between sites.   There’s even a small public-use gazebo in the corner, providing extra space between sites #12 and #13.

All of the facilities are top-notch, including a very clean laundry facility with about 6 commercial top-load washers and 3 or 4 very large commercial front-load dryers.  Washers are $2.00 and dryers are $1.00 for 30 minutes, in quarter increments.  The park offers good WiFi (made better with our WiFi booster) and there’s plenty of cellular coverage too.

If there was any downside, it was the hookups.  All located near the front of the site, the electric was far enough away that we needed to use our extension.  And, the sewer port was slightly above grade, making for a bit of an inconvenience.  But, all in all – a KOA we’d return to.

We stayed here on the way home from Mesa last year. We really enjoyed it too
